Fire Risk Assessments
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 brings fire safety legislation together under one simple order. If you have some level of control in premises then you are obliged to take reasonable steps to prevent fire and ensure there are safe escape routes in place if there is a fire.
As a business you are required to carry out a fire risk assessment. The Fire Regulatory Reform has been in place since 2005, but prosecutions are now more prevalent than ever before. If you are the responsible person, then you MUST conduct an FRA.
Fire Risk Assessments (FRA) can be carried out on existing premises, at the design stage of a new build project and for completed projects. All fire risk assessments are carried out by our fire safety experts, and are conducted independently of our sales team in order to maintain impartiality.
No exact timescales in which assessments should take place are given in the Fire Regulatory Reform Order but generally the responsible person must not only conduct a FRA but maintain it by reviewing it annually. If any significant changes to the building are made or there is a change of use / occupancy then a full re-assessment should be undertaken. If there are no changes to the building then the assessment should be undertaken again approximately every 4-5 years unless otherwise stated by the company policy, insurance requirements or personal choice.
You can perform your own fire risk assessment and there are a number of templates available online. However we advise that unless the risk is low you consult a fire safety professional.
Ask yourself “Am I qualified to assess the risk?” and in the event of a fire “Can I prove to a court of Law that my knowledge, qualifications and insurance liabilities can be justified?” If the answer to these questions is no you can be reassured by using E-Tech and our fire safety specialists . In addition, their significant qualifications and insurance not only support their assessments but should you suffer the worst case scenario will stand up in court.
Fire Safety Training
If your company employs five or more people you are required by law to offer fire safety training.
E-Tech Security offers comprehensive training for fire safety requirements for all your staff. In addition, we offer fire warden or fire marshal training for designated members of staff. Our training can be tailored to suit your specific site and needs, and presentations can be adjusted to include specific instructions or indications.
Fire Extinguisher Training
As part of your general fire safety course or at the time of their service (if the extinguishers are due for replacement) E-Tech can provide you and your staff with basic fire extinguisher training. The training includes the explanation of the different types of extinguishers and which ones are suited to the different types or ‘Classes’ of fire.
